Less is more challenge 4 - 3 Squares

 3    S   Q            

This is the challenge Chrissie and Mandi at the lessismoore challenge has set for this week.

If you haven't yet visited the ladies at their challenge blog, please do, as they also have hints, tips and tutorials on a range of techniques. Worth a visit.

Well, I can't believe I've been so quick off the mark. I think this must be a record for me, getting a card in on the first day of a challenge.

For my card I've used a Nesties square and embossed it three times onto a piece of card and then stamped my images into the centre and added a bit of Distress Ink around the edges.  The card has been mounted onto a piece of black card which has been punced at the bottom with the Martha Stewart Doily punch. I've added some gold ribbon from my stash and mounted the whole lot onto some nice linen effect card.

The picture is a bit dark I'm afraid. I think I've spent more time trying to get a decent picture than it did to make the card, so this will have to do. 

Hubby is off to Wembley tomorrow to watch the cup final, so I have the whole day to myself - what joy!  I will be in my little craft room crafting away to my heart's content.
